the light," the egoistic purpose of their spell is somewhat white washed, as if egoismwas a bad thing.
It is a sad thing to see how many people are brainwashed into having a self destructiveillusion: the illusion that most things that are for their own good are "evil" things.People of this kind became firm believers in the benefits of self denial. Yet the needs tosurvive and to pursue happiness are still there. Not all of these needs transmute easilyinto some illusionary blissful EXPECTATION of future fun in an illusionary heaven.Religious ecstasy can bring a lot of excitement, SEXUAL EXCITEMENT! If you cannotbelieve that, then take an unbiased look at the sadomasochistic symbolism found in allreligions. There is a problem with religious ecstasy. Although it can excite people tothe utmost, it usually fails to bring about a release of the sexual tensions after theycame to a high. Such procedure makes the follower a junkie who does not know thenature of the excitement who is continuously longing for more, hoping that with thehelp of some miracle he or she will find release. The failure to bring gratifying releaseafter excitement is the reason that religious ecstasy is one of the most unhygienicprocedures when seen from a sex economic point of view. It is unhealthy, filthy, on apsychological as well as on a physical level.
The suppressed ego is striving for more and more. A suppressed ego becomes easilydistorted. The god PAN who symbolizes the natural drive to gratification is immobilizedfor the benefit the coffers of some religious hucksters who rightfully fear the hornedgod!
Many people succeed in suppressing their ego almost totally. But the ego still has itsdemands. It is amazing to see what type of incredible mental acrobatics these personscan develop to justify the simple fact that they still feel that satisfying their ego isimportant!
There is no negativity at all in the healthy expression of the needs of a healthy ego. Ifyou have suffered from religious indoctrination for too long a time, you may need tocarefully monitor your first steps of a newly freed ego. When the horned god breaks hischains, all the rage of being suppressed for such a long time may break through withviolence! That's usually the point when the religious huckster does some fingerpointing and says: see, I have warned you! That's the devil! You must mortify yourflesh, give up your ego, and give me all your money!
If allowed to act naturally, the oldest of the gods (PAN in Greek mythology) will be moregentle than any one of the life negating rigid "angels" who do nothing but fatten thebank accounts of religious hucksters. The ancient Greeks still knew this: their myth ofPan, the universe reflects it.
Knowing this, you need no longer be impressed by those who say: "I am of the whitelight (god, christ, and what not ...), and I never will have any negativity around me!"Those folks are the kind of people who do not understand the functioning and thenature of cosmic forces. Worse yet, usually they are also the kind of people who are inthe forefront when it comes to lying, stealing, cheating, and taking advantage of others.This shows that cosmic forces are neutral in essence. It is the human being which, inmisusing these energies, becomes "the wicked one." An objective look at the lifestylesand destinies of the majority of the white lighters, jesus freaks, and other religiousmorons, helps you realize very quickly what breed of hypocrites they really are.

Modern magicians and psychologists recognize the devil, infernal spirits, and demonsfor what they are: universal energies (archetypes, according to Jungian psychologists)that are neutral. It is the people who decide to do an evil which in itself is relative. Intheir pursuit of evil, many people of our times actually use angelic energies and they doso in the name of their god.
